How do I wire my K-Kontrol thermostat?

The thermostat has three contact points. Most of our line voltage thermostats are wired for heating, unless specified otherwise. When you open the thermostat you should see a white wire that is at blue dot and another wire at the red (heating). The red is your power – do  not move this wire. The wire on the blue dot needs to be moved to the yellow dot to be wired for cooling.

Where should my thermostat be located?

If your thermostat is located in an area with direct sunlight, or near a heat vent, it will inaccurately read the air temperature, causing your equipment being controlled by the thermostat to run or be shut off when it shouldn’t.

What’s a piggyback plug?

 A piggyback plug is for easy connection to a 120V AC grounded receptacle. Most of our K-Kontrol thermostats are available with a piggyback plug for easy installation. Simply plug the equipment you are trying to control into the plug, and plug the receptacle into a 120V outlet.
